Since we do not have central air, we depend on our ceiling fans to raise the level of comfort as much as possible.

There is no way I would subject her to a hot room. I know it’s not helping but What are my other options when someone is fragile or new to the world??

Its seem like the people are thinking more in the enviroment.

Since we do not have central air, we depend on our ceiling fans to raise the level of comfort as much as possible. It is rare that we ever turn on the wall unit because it is so noisy and costs too much to operate.

On the hottest days, we may get uncomfortable, but those are the days we want to be enjoying the outdoors anyway. Lucky for me, I make a living selling ceiling fans, so the fans that we own are top of the line and have powerful motors that move a lot of air. The average ceiling fan would not cut the mustard in our circumstance.

I would love to only use it when necessary ie. exteremly hot and/or humid days) but my autistic son pushes out all of the screens and then bends them up because they impede his view outside. So air is a must in summer!
